Kel received an order yesterday from a female customer for a custom balloon design…to be delivered to her brother who had just had a motorbike accident (thankfully he was not more seriously injured other than broken bones). Given the brother had retained his sense of humour throughout his ordeal, she felt that a motorcycle with a monkey riding it would be appropriate.
Kel based his motorcycle design on one that Sam Cremeens put together.
He began with the wheels and built the shell…
Then used balloon weaving to fill in the detail such as transmission, mud flaps and the seat…
He finished off the look using a stick-on LED light on the “headlight”.
Kel then created a monkey to “ride” the bike
This entire piece took Kel about 6.5hrs to complete.
